Welcome to the Ventura County Fire Department’s website. Here you will find an overview of our operations, safety information, career opportunities, our history, and more, demonstrating our commitment to provide excellent service to all the people of our diverse community.
Each of us at VCFD is dedicated to making Ventura County a safer place to live, work, and visit.
We continually work to ensure that we have the right training, equipment, and facilities to meet the public safety needs of the residents and businesses we serve. A big part of our community preparedness is you. By being prepared for emergencies, getting involved, and staying informed, you improve your ability to stay safe and reduce the risk to your home or business.
Our “Ready, Set, Go!” page is filled with information about how to prepare your home and family for wildfires, floods, earthquakes, and other emergencies. Please explore its materials and be one of our partners in public safety.
Our community has seen the impacts of large-scale emergencies, and unfortunately, we are likely to see others in the future. When we work together, we are stronger and more resilient so that we can be our best when we need each other most.
